#1 Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore

What’s so special about the 22 of August 2022? 

Apparently it’s National Tooth Fairy Day and Be An Angel Day apart from many other interesting days (https://nationaltoday.com/august-22-holidays/). But the most important one for us is of course: Avinya’s liftoff!

Apart from it being a monumentally special day for the small team of us behind the scenes, it essentially helped us share with everyone our deep, unreserved passion for ensuring kids have an opportunity to aspire for the future they so deserve.

We are excited to be able to share with you our thoughts and progress as we start our public journey, out of the shadows and heading upwards on the ‘yellow brick road’!

A few key things as we look back on this commemorative week:


  • We now have 98 members and counting in our discussion group forum. Thank you for all your posts, questions, encouraging comments, suggestions and engagement with us. It’s been refreshing and empowering to start and continue conversations on things so close to our hearts in the secondary education space in Sri Lanka. If you are not yet on our discussion group and would like to join, please click here:

  • We have had several offers for financial support, so we have added a separate email for those of you who would like to donate: donations@avinyafoundation.org
  • We are in the initial stages of looking at translating our website and some other content to Sinhala and Tamil. If there are any volunteers for translation please do reach out to us.
  • The support has been amazing and we are very keen to keep the momentum going as we head into the final few months of 2022 to get things set up and going for the launch of our first ever Avinya School in January 2023.
  • Watch this space for weekly updates and more 🙂
